All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon sand.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, O Magazine, February 2004
Years ago, I had reason to study the vast differences between how same sex friends and couples communicate with one another. After careful consideration I decided to make my mate a real friend. It just made no sense to live side-by-side with someone who knew less about who I really was than my best friend did. He did not replace my best female friend, but he did become the best friend I had ever had.
I demanded from him the same treatment I received from my other friends and I gave as good or better than I got. Allowing him all the way inside fostered a trust and he gifted me with equal access to parts of him he had kept hidden for twenty years. The investment was costly, but the pay off was priceless.
